Covers come off Mostert retro livery

Chaz Mostert’s Prodrive Racing Australia Falcon is the latest to be given a retro treatment ahead of this weekend’s Sandown 500.

The Supercheap Auto-backed car will carry a livery inspired by the John Briggs EL Falcon from 1999, which marked the automotive retail brand’s second year as a sponsor in Australian Touring Car racing.

The ’99 livery was picked as part of a fan vote that covered a range of different Supercheap colour schemes.

“Retro Round is a great concept and it is nice to be able to recognise a bit of Supercheap Auto’s 20-year history in the sport this weekend at the Sandown 500,” said Mostert, who will share the car with co-driver Steve Owen.

“We ran one of their retro liveries last year which was a lot of fun and got a great fan response so hopefully the fans really like what we’ve got this year. John Briggs played a big role in Supercheap Auto’s entry to the sport so hopefully we can do him proud.

“John’s original car has been restored and it is great that it is still around. I had the chance to check it out and while 1999 isn’t that long ago for a lot of fans, I couldn’t get over how much Supercars have developed.

“You can tell it is a Supercar but it looks ancient when you compare it to the Prodrive Racing FG X Falcon I drive today. The technology has come a long way, as have the materials we use to build the car and of course the safety we have has advanced significantly.”
